Intertrust has engaged an independent broker to execute the repurchase transactions on its behalf. The ordinary shares are being repurchased at a price that does not exceed the lower of (1) a maximum of 110% of the average of the highest quoted price per share on the last five consecutive trading days immediately preceding the date of repurchase, according to the Official Price List of Euronext Amsterdam and (2) the threshold stipulated by Article 3(2) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052. The share repurchase will be funded from Intertrust’s available cash resources.
The share buyback programme will be implemented within the limitations of the authority granted to the Management Board by the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, which authorised the Management Board to purchase up to 10% of Intertrust’s issued share capital per 14 May 2021, for a period of 18 months starting 14 May 2021 and ending 14 November 2022. The Supervisory Board has approved the share buyback programme on 26 September 2021. If and to the extent required, further shareholders’ approval will be requested as referred to in Section 2:98 paragraph 4 of the Dutch Civil Code. The share repurchase programme will be conducted in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 and within the safe harbour parameters for repurchase programmes.
